After the gathering held on Monday evening at Austria's mission to the UN in New York, Kurz "stressed it was positive that awareness about this problem has developed among his colleagues from the Balkans."

Islamic radicalization, according to him, has an impact in Austria as well, "because there are close links with the countries of the Western Balkans."

During the meeting, held at the initiative of the Austrian foreign minister, other topics included "Turkey's growing influence in the Western Balkans."
